Elvis Presley's granddaughter, Riley Keough, paid tribute to her "twin soul" brother Benjamin with a touching tribute almost two months after his tragic death.


Riley Keough shows that her late brother, Benjamin Keough is never far from her heart and mind, as she paid tribute to him, marking the second month since his death.

On July 12, Benjamin sadly died by suicide, and Riley shared a throwback picture of them on Monday in his memory with a heartbreaking message. 



The 31-year-old actress expressed how much she missed her brother alongside the goofy picture of them together. The pair shared a close relationship, and the loss left an emptiness Riley grapples with every day, as she wrote:

"Two months without you. I would give anything for 1 more minute with you little brother."


Riley also recently got a tattoo in her brother's memory and had the name "Benjamin Storm" inked on her collarbone.

She missed her best friend terribly and wrote in a previous update that she finds mornings the hardest because she wakes up forgetting that he is gone, only for it to come rushing back.



Raw emotions poured into the update as Riley shared that she can't cry because the tears might not stop flowing with this new type of pain that fills her days and nights since Benjamin died.

"You. There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector. Too sensitive for this harsh world," Riley wrote.



Riley and Benjamin are Lisa Marie Presley's children with her ex-husband Danny Keough. The twin girls, Finley and Harper, Lisa Marie shares with her ex-husband Michael Lockwood.

The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner confirmed that Benjamin died from a self-inflicted "intraoral shotgun wound," leaving Lisa Marie shattered, according to her rep Roger Widynowski who spoke with PEOPLE.

Last month also marked a memorable day in the Presley family, as August 16 saw the 43rd anniversary of Elvis Presley's death at the age of 42.

The annual Graceland candlelight vigil didn't quite take place as previous years due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, but those wanting to pay their respects still had the opportunity to purchase one of a limited amount of tickets to keep the tradition going.
